1. As stewards of the public trust, public procurement professionals must cultivate leadership skills not only to lead others through complex processes but also to become an active contributor to the achievement of their entities as a whole. Building upon the comprehensive belief that leadership at all levels is critical for success in the procurement function, NIGP’s Foundations of Leadership Core Certificate empowers practitioners to take their careers to the next level, integrating hallmark concepts on leadership, innovation, agility, communication, and relationship management to empower novice leaders with the skillsets they need to succeed. Through integrated course methodologies, learners will engage in targeted case studies, exercise-driven scenarios, and concept-driven mentorship in order to gain a foundation understanding of leadership and the practices you need to excel in the field. Throughout this interactive and engaging course, learners will develop the skills they need to become great leaders not only in the procurement function but in the entirety of their governmental entity.
